x 8

The formula of converting the Kilobit to Kilobyte is represented as follows :

kB = kbit / 8

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobit (kbit) to Kilobyte (kB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Kilobyte = Kilobit / 8

STEP 1

Kilobyte = Kilobit x (1 / 8)

STEP 2

Kilobyte = Kilobit x 0.125

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 3 kbit to kB, will be processed as below.

1. = 3 / 8
2. = 3 x (1 / 8)
3. = 3 x 0.125
4. = 0.375
5. i.e. 3 kbit is equal to 0.375 kB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### Definition : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bits. It is commonly used to express data transfer speeds, such as the speed of an internet connection and to measure the size of a file. In the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Kibibit (Kibit) is used instead.

#### Definition : Kilobyte

A Kilobyte (kB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bytes (or 8,000 bits) and commonly used to express the size of a file or the amount of memory used by a program. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of kibibyte (KiB) is used instead.
